OPP expect area protests to continue all day

OPP helicopters who were in the area for a planned Indigenous protest were able to then assist Six Nations Police in searching for a suspect in a completely unrelated case.
 
According to Ken Johnson, Community Relations and Media Officer with the Brant County OPP, the provincial police did have a heads up that there would be a protest this morning.
 
He added that protesters are expected to stay in place all day, and as a result of that, Cockshutt Road would remain closed between Tutela Heights Road and County Road 18 all day as well.
 
The OPP has a provincial liaison negotiating with leaders of the protest.
 
Six Nations Police have not indicated that they have apprehended the suspect they were seeking, but Johnson stated that no one was in any danger at any time. No word on why the suspect is being sought.
